This practical text, written by four key researchers in the field, offers an effective approach to the management and treatment of back pain based on applications of biomechanics. By linking the clinical anatomy of the spine to biomechanics principles, it provides a bridge between anatomy and practical applications. This highly illustrated, up-to-date book is essential reading for anyone involved in the care and treatment of patients with back pain, as well as for those studying its causes and methods of prevention. Addresses the important and prevalent problem of back pain thoroughly from a unique biomechanics perspective. Written especially for practitioners, the book presents information in a way that is relevant to therapists who treat patients with back pain. Authored by four of the leading researchers in the field from different professional backgrounds, the book comprehensively examines back pain from diverse perspectives. Provides an understanding of back mechanics that is necessary in order to form an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Six new chapters are included: Growth and Aging of the Lumbar Spine; Spinal Degeneration; Biomechanics of Spinal Surgery; Surgery for Disc Prolapse; Spinal Stenosis and Back Pain; and Conservative Management of Back Pain. Expanded sections on spinal growth and aging provide additional comprehensive information on this important topic. Includes additional and updated information on the interpretation and explanation of spine research literature. An expanded color plate section with 23 new black-and-white photographs and 21 new line drawings illustrate the content clearly.

Chronic low-back pain is the focus of this book. Presented in a systematic manner, this work reviews epidemiological studies which have shown that various mechanical factors play a significant role in the onset of chronic low-back pain. To provide you with a better understanding of the information in these chapters, ample illustrations and tables are included. At the end of each chapter, the reader is directed to even further in-depth information. It is the intent of the authors that this writing will promote further biomechanical research. Written in an instructional format, this text is ideal for training bioengineering and medical students. This volume is also of practical value to practicing surgeons and scientists who are interested in seeking solutions to the low-back pain problem.

An essential exam preparation workbook, CRQs for the Final FRCA is dedicated to helping candidates pass this new assessment type for the Final FRCA Written Paper first time. Focusing solely on the Constructed Response Question (CRQ), the book is organised into six practice papers each comprised of 12 CRQs, reflecting the real exam. Each question has been carefully laid out, clearly identifying the weighting of each part of the question and with appropriate space to write your answer. Covering a breadth of topics, the book represents the full spectrum of the Final FRCA curriculum. Appendices indicate which aspects of the curriculum and units of training have been addressed in each practice paper to help you structure your revision efficiently. Written by a team of consultant anaesthetists and active educators, detailed model answers are based on years of clinical experience, best practice guidelines, and supported by further reading and evidence base. Many acceptable answers are listed (more than the candidate is required to give), enriching your revision experience and ensuring that you can mark your answers accurately. This invaluable resource also includes advice on CRQ technique, making this the only guide candidates need to pass CRQs in the Final FRCA Written Paper.

Ultrasound in Liquid and Solid Metals focuses on the effect of intensive ultrasound on metals, including the analysis of the development of cavitation and acoustic flows in melts, mechanism of metals' spraying and crystallization, the formation of dislocation structure in crystals, diffusion, phase transformation, and plastic deformation. Physical fundamentals of intensive ultrasound effects are covered, and detailed discussions are presented on the engineering principles of equipment and material design for the practical use of ultrasound in the refining of melts, crystallization of ingots and molds, pulverization, plating, pressure working of metals, surface strengthening, and other processes.
